If there's one sure thing in the world of college football recruiting, it's that the Wisconsin Badgers will never have trouble attracting offensive linemen.

Wisconsin added their newest recruit, offensive lineman Joe McNamara, on Sunday, making him their third offensive lineman in the class of 2010. The 6'2", 270-pound McNamara joins the Badgers after initially committing to Stanford eight months ago, but the Cardinal backed away after he tore his ACL.

McNamara, a three-star recruit rated as the No. 29 offensive guard in his class, comes out of Cypress Bay High School in Florida. He played on the defensive line in high school, as well, but his real strength was on the offensive line.

McNamara comes to a school where offensive linemen have flourished (Cleveland Browns tackle and former Badger Joe Thomas is playing in the Pro Bowl as I type this) and will look to add his name to that list of Wisconsin greats.

He'll have to wait a year or two, though, because Wisconsin returns their entire starting offensive line from last year.
